What you should doubt is the 2006 census. My local government was third most populous now we are in 9th place and yet you don't see me complaining

Those are numbers of registered voters in Delta State and by 2023 the urhobo would have grown marginally higher than Anioma again

The figures are those of people with electoral power in Delta state and 47% of them are in urhobo and isoko land without even adding warri south. Just give it up
There are sizeable number of Isoko people in ndokwa East

Isoko in Ndokwa East are traditional migrants(tenants) there, and would have to assimilate into the culture of their host, if they want to continue living in peace there. After all, the Igbide in Isoko who were originally Igbos had fully assimilated as Isokos and there are many other towns like that, including Orogun who are now bilingual in Urhobo and Ukwuani.


The figures are not adding up.
I don't believe Urhobos outnumber Anioma by that much.
I would rather believe there was poor voters registration in Anioma which should be tackled by stakeholders there.

I don't know what you mean by tenants and assimilation. The second largest ward there is completely isoko speaking with Isoko speakers here and there in others. It seems you don't understand the direction of assimilation when villages with Igbo/ukwani/ukwale names like umuti and okafor are Isoko speaking. Very recent migration into asaba ase and it's now billingual with more isoko speakers. Infact a sizeable amount of ase ukwani clan are billinguals and these aren't the people I was referring to.

Whether you like it or not those are the registered voters in Delta State and we don't register almajiri/underage like the north. Rural areas might have seen low turnouts but urhobo and isoko areas have rural and riverine areas too.

G.M sir.

Okpe is a dialect of Urhobo and to some extent it is mutually intelligible , most Uvwie speakers easily understand okpe, but It is somehow complex for central Urhobo speakers.

Majority of okpe indigenes speak both the general Urhobo dialect and the Okpe dialect, Some okpe towns like Oha, Orerokpe, Osubi, Sapele etc speak the general Urhobo dialect, but core Okpe towns like Ughoton, Jeddo, Ugbokodo etc speak the core Okpe dialect, every town in Delta state speak pidgin.
which Ughoton are you talking about
